I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Complementary treatment

So, I had another visit with the homoeopathic clinic today, and, we've hammered out a plan for the Lupron, and, treatment beyond Lupron. I really like this clinic and the Dr. I am working with is great! I had already been working on some things, but, here are some of the things I am going to be working on to help lower my natural estrogen intake, and, to supplement the Lupron:
  • Fish Oil-make sure it has at least 300mg of DHA/EPA, and EPA is the most important of the two!
  • OsteoPrime multi-this is a multi type vitamin that will concentrate on bone health as I go through treatments
  • Herbal tinxture- for inflammation/gynecological health
  • Work on my diet-organic meats and dairy are important to reduce estrogens; lots of GREEN vegetables; less processed foods; cut WAY back on caffeine and cola intake
  • Castor Oil Remedy-Soak a cloth in oil, place on stomach with heat 1-2x's a week, not during menstruation
  • Reduce plastics for warm foods and water
So, these are things I can definitely do to better myself! I need to start working out more often as well. I hope that these things will help with the Lupron, my endo, and my overall health!!! Very excited about the dual coverage. :) Oh, MASSAGE is recommended too. Score. I can definitely do that!

Good luck with the Lupron. A tip I recommend is to keep mini hershy bars in your purse. I don't know what it is, but they work wonders for mood swings. When I was on the Lupron, I would have a crazy swing and eating just 1 mini-bar helped calm the irritability. Maybe it was just b/c I love chocolate. But it was recommended to me so I wanted to pass it on to you!

I wish I didn't live in the boonies! I would love to see a homeopathic doctor to get some help for dealing with menopause after my hysterectomy!
